Occasionally, we think it’s nice to look around and notice the good things going on in the community. Here is a list of events and organizations that deserve a pat on the back.
- Last Monday, the Washington County Schools school board voted to give employees a new option for health insurance.
Those employees will have the option of staying with the former provider, but they now have the option of paying less for coverage that is as good or better than the previous provider.
Hats off to the school board and the people that worked hard in finding savings for the employees.
Money saved is always a good thing.
- Another hats off to Washington County Schools for high attendance rates through the beginning of the year.
As someone in the meeting said, showing up for school is like showing up for work: you can’t do the job if you’re not there.
Kudos to the students for being there and for school officials for finding ways to encourage high attendance.
- Hats off to Elizabethtown Community and Technical College’s administration of Washington County’s adult education grants.
The program received a clean audit from Adam Edelen, the state auditor.
No findings were addressed, which is a good thing. Keep up the good work.
- The Bourbon Chase deserves a round of applause for putting on a unique event that both promotes health and highlights the beautiful and famous aspects of Kentucky.
Keep an eye out for runners on Friday and Saturday. They’ll be coming in droves. Make sure to smile, wave and say, “Great job.” I know they’ll appreciate it.
